A Lousy Example Of A Man

| DE, USA | Flirting/How We Met, LGBTQ, Popular

(I have just come out as transgender and aside from my really short hair, I still look and sound very feminine, even though I am a man. This happened at the end of a transaction while I was working the register.)

Customer: “You know, you’re pretty hot. What time do you get off?”

Me: “I’m not interested, sir.”

Customer: “Whatever. You look like a man, anyway.”

Me: *cheerfully* “Thank you! I’m trying!”

(He looked at me strangely and walked away with his purchases while I could hear both my manager and one of my coworkers cracking up from somewhere nearby.)


That’s Not How It Goes In The Movies

(I promote foods and other goods in a big box retail store. I’m currently promoting a movie and selling tickets when this horrible conversation happens.)

Me: “Would you like to buy [Movie] tickets?

Guy: “Can I take you?”

Me: “Oh. Sorry, sir. I’m happily married.”

Guy: “That’s not what I asked you, b****.”


How To Start Fires

(My husband and I go to our local dollar store. I point out a spot close to the front of the store.)

Husband: “I can’t park there. It’s for the Fire Department.”

(He finds a spot farther away. I ponder this for a moment.)

Me: “FD only does not mean Fire Department. It means Family Dollar only. Thanks for the walk!”
